A gorgeous and alternating turquoise heartline is set into this bushytail (Coyote
, or Wolf
) by Kenric Laiwakete. This turquoise-eyed canine has been carved from septarian nodule which is basically fossilized clay and mud. Over the years crystalline calcite formed in cracks within the clay mud as the minerals leached out with moisture. Dark lines of aragonite can be seen along the edges of these crystalline inclusions. About 3 5/8" long, 1/2" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
